WAHOOO!!!

I got LASIK done yesterday!!!!!!!!! I am BEYOND excited!! I've had to wear contacts/glasses since 7th grade -- it was time for me to SEE!!! :D Let me tell you, the procedure itself was NOT a fun experience -- I felt like I had been abducted by aliens -- and the first few hours afterward were V E R Y painful -- a whole lot more than I was expecting! But by the end of the day, the pain was just a dull ache. Today, it's just a mild discomfort -- kind of like I'm wearing some very old, very gritty contacts -- nothing some ibuprofen doesn't take care of just fine and dandy! My vision's still a little hazy, but I'm seeing better than 20/20 already, and my doc said it'll even get BETTER from here! I went to the movies tonight with my wonderful hubby and our friends -- and I could see SO many details on the screen -- it was quite exciting! By the way, we saw "The Proposal" -- I highly recommend it -- HILARIOUS! I haven't seen a good chick flick in a long time -- and this one did not disappoint! If any of you out there are "The Office" fans, you MUST go see this, just to see Oscar's dance. BWA HAHAHA!!! I seriously got the giggles! Anyway -- I just had to gloat a little that I was lucky enough to get LASIK -- I'm so excited for the little things -- like seeing the clock in the middle of the night, SEEING where I'm going when I get up in the middle of the night when Gray gets up, etc, etc. I would for sure recommend it to anyone that's been thinking about having it done -- I just wouldn't want to do it again :)

Sigh, I'm so jealous of you guys and your Lasik-ness! But that is so awesome! Hooray for good vision!

Hey, that's so nice for you. I am going to have to convince Brian to get LASIK too. He's been wanting to get it done for years. I can only imagine how nice it must be to be able to see things right when you wake up when you haven't been able to before. :)

So dang JEALOUS!!! Seriously, I bet you just love it. I am super sensitive with my eyes thats why I don't wear contacts so the procedure scares me to death but I am so excited to get it someday. Did you go to Balif?

That is so exciting! I am VERY jealous!!! I want so badly to be able to wake up in the morning and SEE! I will have to get more details from you sometime, cuz I'm dying to get it done.
I loved The Proposal too!! It was hilarious. That's one I think I'm going to have to own.
